Only if you have an agenda against guns, which it is obvious you do. Guns should be the last thing on peoples mind when it comes to killing.

Fake outrage, abundant here in this thread.

By your logic, criminals obey the law.

Another great leftist answer....no not really, but par for the course.

Why is criminal called a criminal? If you can answer that honestly, you will have answered your own question.

Sure, why not?

It's worked so well with narcotics, gambling, prostitution, abortion, etc.

Please tell me what a criminal thinks of the law?

Please tell me in your own words what an assault weapon is, in your own words, not the Lemur left words.....

I believe at Sandy Hook someone hit the speaker button so that the teachers were alerted as to what was happening. It could have been averted if a teacher was carrying.

The 5,740 children and teens killed by guns in 2008 and 2009 was greater than the number of U.S. military personnel killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan (5,013).

The number of preschoolers killed by guns in 2008 (88) and in 2009 (85) was nearly double the number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty in 2008 (41) and 2009 (48).

Here are some more facts for you. People die from prescription drugs everyday taking them as perscribed by their Dr.

I guess we should ban perscription medication. I certainly don't think that Obamacare should cover them because people die from them on a daily basis. No matter that many are also helped...

You must be a selfish cruel person if you think we should continue to let Drs perscribe medications to their patients. They are perpetuating the death toll.

you also need the tools to help stop crime, otherwise the cops would need no firearms at all.
